Gastric band in Turkey

Gastric band in Turkey

An adjustable gastric band in Turkey is an inflatable silicone device in the shape of a circle that is implanted around the upper stomach and is used to treat obesity. The device divides the stomach into two chambers and reduces the amount of food absorbed by directly preventing the ingestion of solid food and triggering slow digestion, achieving a feeling of satiety while the amount of food absorbed is still small. A control device is placed under the skin, which is easily accessible during outpatient examinations.

Gastric banding is one of several methods of bariatric surgery indicated for obese patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or more, or 35-40 in patients with other comorbidities that can be improved by weight loss: sleep apnea, diabetes, hypertension, or metabolic syndrome. Of the adjustable gastric band patients, approximately 80% achieve significant weight loss.

Gastric band in Turkey Procedure

Gastric band in Turkey Procedure

Gastric banding is a laparoscopic, minimally invasive procedure. A gastric band in Turkey is placed around the upper part of the stomach, creating a mini-stomach with a volume of about 1 to 2 tablespoons above the existing stomach, similar to gastric bypass but without physical separation.

Thus, gastric banding works differently than gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy. There is no incision in the stomach. The band is placed around the upper part of the stomach and connected by a tube to a box in the abdominal wall.

This box can be punctured and fluid injected or removed. The circumference of the gastric band can thus be changed without surgery. For example, the band can be increased or decreased in size through a subcutaneous injection hole. This creates a small pocket in the upper part of the stomach, which is larger or smaller depending on how full the band is.

The gastric band is made of silicone and is used by the surgeon in Turkey during the surgical procedure on the upper part of the stomach. As a result, the intake of the amount of food should be restricted, as well as the calories intake is reduced. The gastric band is adjustable in size and contains a saline-filled balloon that helps to reduce the bodyweight.


The gastric band surgery is a minimally invasive technique, which is performed under general anesthesia and with the help of a laparoscopy. Due to the so-called key-hole method, only a few incisions in the abdominal wall are needed through which the band is placed around the upper stomach, thus dividing the stomach into two. The resulting “forestomach” corresponds to the size of a tennis ball, which prevents that too much food is taken. However, the feeling of hunger remains present which means that if the patient suddenly takes a lot of solid food, an uncomfortable pressure in the upper abdomen and throat will arise, which quickly leads to nausea and vomiting.

It is spoken of as a successful therapy when a reduction of the excess weight of at least 50 % is achieved – this corresponds to about 0.5 Kg per week.

Behavior after gastric band surgery

Behavior after gastric band surgery

After gastric banding surgery, it is recommended to eat slowly and chew well to allow food to pass through the reduced opening into the stomach. Food moves down from the mouth and is propelled by contractions of the esophagus. If the food does not pass through the band, obstruction occurs and vomiting may follow. The patient instinctively believes that the tighter the belt, the greater the weight loss. However, a belt that is too tight can be problematic. In this case, only soft foods can be eaten, which by definition are fattier and sweeter.

As a result, little is eaten, but very rich foods are consumed, so the weight loss may not be in proportion to the efforts made. In addition, the diet is then not balanced enough. Our Turkish doctors choose an optimal circumference of the gastric band so that you lose weight well, but you are still not too restricted or even experience negative effects.
